Hi Scott!Read all the questions & your sincere replies to each of them. I like your patient & caring attitude. I am free member at WA, but haven’t gone past the self profiling & 1st lesson. Reason: being employed doesn’t give me much free time for online learning..not that, having sufficient time to learn would make me an expert, as my ‘Net’ worthiness comes to nearly nothing..yes just web browsing, emailing & stuff like that. Much as I would like to be a Premier member to become very Net savvy with its technicalities, I doubt my own abilities at my age(yes i am 50)to do online business as an affiliate. But affiliate is what i want to be in future. So, Scott advise me.
I’ve been reading your reviews on WA for awhile today and am extremely pleased to have found you! This post brings up a question: if I am an affiliate for a writer’s group I belong to, I receive discounts on all of their training products. Can you explain how would I receive monetary compensation for being an affiliate (or as a distributor for health care products, for example, and an essential oil company that I also belong to) and by driving traffic to their websites? Also, if I have multiple websites do I then need to maintain blogs for each one to maximize Google traffic or can they in anyway be linked to streamline this process?
WA members are welcome to review the program, unlike many MLM members. MLMs companies force their members to sign a non-disclosure agreement, meaning that these people will never be able to publicly review and expose the company and its practices. I managed to find a few negative Wealthy Affiliate reviews and complaints online and I came to the conclusion that these reviews were written for personal reasons. Mistakes happen, misunderstanding happens and every single business will have at least one customer who isn’t going to be happy.
For your question on the length of time to be up and running, it is really subjective. If your speed of interpreting and executing the information is fast, you can be up and running in a matter of days, but if you take your time like I did, it will take probable 2 weeks to a month to be up and running. Making money is another story, it took me 4 months to make my first commission, some people took weeks while some people never see any results. Wealthy Affiliate Costs How Much?? [Hidden Price]
If you’re a blogger, start by going through your analytics and finding your most popular posts. In Google Analytics (GA) you can find these pages by going to your GA Dashboard > Behavior > Site Content > All Pages. Examine the ones at the top of the list that bring in the most traffic. Are there any affiliate products or services you can naturally include in them?
I read this great review of yours about WA and decided to give it a try since I live in SE Asia and am earning barely the minimum wage in America. But after registering, I got a message that Free Starter accounts are not available in my country and I have to choose from either the $47 monthly plan or $359 yearly plan. Do you think this is a worthwhile investment as a part time thing? (Taking into consideration the fact that I am not really knowledgeable or skilled in marketing, not to mention online marketing)
4. Zero Entitlement – This has been the death of many potentially successful marketers on the internet. Affiliate marketing is no get rich quick scheme — it’s a business that requires dedication, effort and hard work. If you feel entitled to earn money because you placed a few ads or you followed a guide and are expecting instant or guaranteed returns, you will be killed! Failure is just a lesson learnt and a step closer to success.
Hi jack, thanks for all of your help in this. I recently saw a webinar for inbox blueprint 2.0. Of course they did a great job selling. I found you while I decided to do a little more research on the topic. For beginners in online email marketing like me, what do you recommend. Inbox blueprint claims they guide you step by step, however you recommend Wealthy Affiliate in this article. If you were beginning in this industry but have tons of online knowledge, which program would you choose. Thanks!
If you do decide to go ahead and try affiliate marketing, don't give up when things get tough. When you feel like giving up, message me within Wealthy Affiliate first before calling it quits. Every new affiliate goes through the frustrating phase of wanting to quit. When you hit that phase, success is usually right around the corner waiting on you (assuming you followed the training).
If you decide to join the premium membership you can get your first month at a highly discounted rate of only $19. A 59% discount off the normal monthly rate of $47. After your first month the price goes up to $47 a month and you can cancel your membership at any time. There’s no obligation and no limits. We do have a Black Friday special running from now through Monday where you can get an entire year of WA for an insanely low price of $299. This works out to under $25 a month or 82 cents per day.
Also, having been priviledged to serve on the Board Of Directors of the Network Marketing industry’s professional association for 4 years, representing Canada (ANMP.com – Association of Network Marketing Professionals), a global, non-profit organization, which serves to educate, protect and support Network Marketers) – I guess I do feel somewhat “protective” of this industry.
I am really excited about Wealthy Affilliate and I really want to give it a try subscribing from your link but I’d really like to know what I’m going to do to receive money. A friend of mine told me that I will build a web page to sell any product I want to. My question is, am I going to have a great quality web page to sell something? Will I have a well looking web page? Can a I see your best selling web page that you’ve got hosted inside Wealthy affilliate? Thanks in advance, If I see that my page will look great, I will gladly join WA from your link.
I will be there to help you out and answer any questions you may have prior to getting started. If you haven’t done so already I would suggest that you open your FREE account and spend a few minutes completing your profile with an image and description. I will be sending you a message within an hour of you joining to welcome you to the community and answer any questions you have.
2. Finding the correct products to promote – If you’re promoting crap products, no one is going to buy them. No matter how good you are at marketing. Finding the correct merchant is one of the most important steps on your affiliate journey, you need to be promoting attractive products that people want to buy. That way, half the work is already done for you!
To be honest Wealthy Affiliate appealed to me when I first joined in 2007 because they also never promised any riches overnight. They never bombarded me with pictures of guys in rented mansions or driving rented Lamborghinis. They actually did a great job explaining that building a successful business online requires hard work and a time investment.
Thank you for the reply. You have been on WA for a few years. As there are many different niches; from your knowledge, how many niches(if more than 1) should one person have to provide others with eye catching sites with solid and valuable information make a comfortable living(6 figure) as there are abundance of overwhelming information? You answer pretty fast, which I like. Thanks.
I am a student. I have a goal of making about $100,000-$200,000(+)/year within the next 2/3 years with multiple income streams. I already am with an marketing company and they have given me 5/6 mini websites. But I want to have as much income streams as possible in other niches, along with the online business I have already. I have some idea about generating traffic to my mini websites, but I want to know how to convert the traffics into sales and leads. Do You think that’s possible if I join with wealthy affiliate? I am not really looking for money right now, just something that I can legitimately built up within 2/3 years of time. Also I noticed the WA premium membership allows upto 25 website domain or unlimited free websites; I am not sure. do I have to buy each of the domains if I sign up as a premium member? Also, in your opinion, how many articles minimum should an website on WA have to have good ranking? I am a total novice in article writing for business purposes and website building. Please let me know. Thanks!
Really don't understand this guy. He wanted help with his site so he goes into it trying to get free help by joining the free trial meant for begginers wanting to try Wealthy Affiliate. So when he gets in there it sounded like he was rude to the people trying to give him advice pertaining to the question(s) he was asking. If he knew everything he claimed he knew he should have went for the paid membership that gave him access to much more that he could have went through himself. But because he didn't get his questions anwered he thought to make Wealthy Affiliate pay by writing it on Ripoff report. The guy sounds bendictive an imature which probably shows in his website.
